Chickpea "Chicken" Salad
Updated: Jan 17, 2020
I still remember my husband's goofy grin while I went out on a whim and began to pull out the ingredients for this salad.
As he continued whipping up turkey sandwhiches for him & the kids, I, being the hungry-hungry-vegan with nothing to eat, was scrounging and searching for something I could whip up - and fast!
After poking a little fun at my ingredients & chopping, my husband had nothing left to joke about after taking a bite of this salad!
1 Can Chickpeas for your "Chicken"
2 Tbs Sunflower Seeds
1/2 Celery Stalk - chopped/diced
1 Small/Medium Sized Carrot - chopped/diced
2 Tbs Vegan Mayo (Optional)
2Tbs Dijon Mustard
Black Pepper (or Red Pepper Flakes to add some spice)
• Drain & Rinse, then Mash up the Chickpeas in a medium-sized bowl with a fork
• Add in Celery & Carrots
• Add Mayo & Mustard, Mix until inorporated well
• Top Mixture onto your choice of bread, or pita with romaine lettuce, tomato & pepper
Pair with some deliciously fruity, infused water, lemonade, or sangria for the perfect Summer pick-me-up!
